Mandai Mangroves with Dan Rittschof’s Urban Ecology class

20 Mar 2008 – It was time for my annual trek with Dan’s students to introduce Mandai mangroves. Some tales later, for I must go crash now. And then there are students reports to read when I wake…


Dog-faced water snake


Episesarma singaporense


Selatium brocki


Mangrove huntsman


A huntsmen spider up on an Avicennia sp. tree


Dan pondering; we had the students lead them out after that


Students figured their way out under watchful eyes


The Traffic jam at Woodlands Road stretched past Kranji MRT


Briskwalked out to Kranji MRT and just in time for the bus too!


Regrouped at the Woodlands Road junction – had to check I still had everyone


Mission accomplished with no casualties…
